6 Beach Reads

Hello everyone! Welcome to another Top "Ten" Tuesday! This week's topic is everything beach related. I'll be super quick in this post because I have so much work to do (yay procrastination) so I'm only going to mention 6 for the sake of aesthetics instead of my usual 9. Alright, let's get started!

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - I didn't exactly fall in love with this book like everyone else did, but it was still a fun contemporary. I won't get into my feeling persay but since it's so popular I thought I'd put it on the list.
Slammed by Colleen Hoover - I absolutely adored this book and it's definitely my favorite CoHo book so far. It's got the fun aspect of contemporary but with that extra punch that makes it memorable.
The Piano Man Project by Kat French - This is a book I picked up on a whim because I thought the cover was adorable and the title had the word piano in it. It turned out to be a really fun and sweet novel and definitely something I can envision myself reading on the beach.

White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout - This one doesn't exactly fall into the fun and light category but it's definitely fun. The Dark Elements trilogy was one of my favorites from last year because it was action packed and had a ton of great one liners that just made me crack up. 
Kissing Madeleine by Lex Martin - I was scrolling through Goodreads and stopped at this novel and after reading my review I decided to throw this one in the list as well. It's fun and sweet but also has the same heart wrenching effect that I tend to like in contemporaries.
Ice Massacre by Tiana Warner - Since we're by the beach, I thought I'd include this one which takes place on the ocean for a majority of the story. To be honest, I don't think the oceans in this story are the best option when it comes to relaxing since there are man-eating mermaids but it was a thrilling story that literally blew my mind when I first read it. (BTW where is that sequel??)

So that's my list! Let me know in the comments what books made it on your list that I should check out! Thank you so much for reading!


  1. I actually didn't love Anna that much as well. I thought it was okay, pretty good, but nothing special. So i am happy to hear someone else mentioning not loving it!
    Wonderful list :)

    1. Ahh someone who agrees! I've literally went through Goodreads and it seems like everyone loves it!! Thank you for commenting!! ♥♥Riv

  2. I really liked Anna and the French Kiss but I still haven't read the rest of the companion series. I have been wanting to check out Colleen Hoover's books for a while. Also, I love your blog design!! :D

    1. I haven't continued either but I might try over the summer. And YES please read a CoHo book! I recommend Slammed (ofc) but you should also check out November 9 (currently reading it and it's so good!) and Confess! Aww you're so sweet thank you! ♥Riv

  3. I agree with Anna and The French Kiss! All Stephanie Perkins books are light and fluffy, Perfect for the summer/beach! :)
    My Top Ten Tuesday!

    1. I need to continue with the series because I heard they get better! :)
